    Self-explanatory thread about weird or commonplace coincidences, that took us on the same path as a Liverpool legend.
    My kids and the current manager were born in the same city and he was born exactly three weeks after me.

    Used to play in the same league (but a lower age group) as Jay Spearing.

    Is that what you had in mind?

    It would be if Jay Spearing didn't happen to be ineligible on account of his legendariness being off the scale of the thread's official meter

    Is the current manager a legend already?

    I once washed my hands in the same sink as Stephen Sama in a nightclub toilet.

    Edit: Forgot to add, I hadn't even had a piss yet, just wanted to get in there before he left.

    'Legend' being bandied about in such an inflationary manner you mean. Well, can we put it down to youthful enthusiasm?

    I have quite a few weird or common place coincidences with legendary owner John W. Henry. But i'm not sure that's not really what this thread had in mind.

    I used to often find myself in the same places as Linda Pizzuti and by a total coincidence both our names appear on the same court order.

    When I was a kid I used to run on my tiptoes, which drew scorn and derision from my footballing pals until one day someone pointed out that Peter Cormack ran in exactly the same way. And he did! He instantly became my favourite LFC player.

    When I was 9 I asked to have my hair cut just like my hero, Kevin Keegan. And I ended up looking like a total dick. Just like Kevin Keegan. Result!

    In the 1980s I developed a mild obsession for Lisa Bonet, an actress who appeared in the Cosby Show. Years later I discovered that the Cosby Show was produced by Tom Werner, now chairman of LFC, and I am guessing he probably had a mild obsession too. Who wouldn't?!

    In 1985 I bought the Phil Collins album 'No Jacket Required' simply because I thought it might impress a girl I quite fancied. That year every member of the Liverpool squad bought that album. In fact every other professional footballer in the UK bought it. To this day it is Steven Gerrard's favourite album of all time. He won't publically admit it, but I just know that it is.

    One day when I was kid I was in Aust service station about to get my favourite meat pie and chips. I then saw Garry Gillespie who got in line behind us. I waited to see what he ordered and I ordered the same. It was horrible. I was angry. His career went downhill shortly afterwards.

    I have shared saliva - inadvertently - with Bruce Grobbelaar. Was having a few pints with him and @SF Red on 9 January 2015 (the day before my daughter was born, the little @!#$#) and when he came back from the toilet, he grabbed my beer and took a gulp before realizing it was IPA instead of the pish he normally drinks. A part of me is with him forever.

    You know it's true, Jungleman...

    My daughter is a center back. And so was Hansen. And sometimes so is Lucas.

    Filling my car up some years ago in Liverpool and my teenage son suddenly went totally spare.
    Seems Grobs was filling up on the other side of the same pump.

    There have been very lucrative book deals based on less than that. Don't spoil the story: tell us your whole family prefer Stones (rolling not John obviously)!

    Oops, posted in the wrong thread last night.

    I asked Jan Molby if we were signing Mkhitaryan and he confided that yes, we were. So what we have in common is that we were both duped lol

    I've got Peter Beardsley's looks, Sammy Lee's height Jan Molby's waistline and Djimi Traore's football ability. I'm a composite LFC legend.

    You don't call it 'stay' if it's every week you know. That's a part-time job
